    na didnt see it on tv.My closest beach has a slow gradient and is usually at least 150m of waves it is shallow unless you get out the back.So i usually fish further away beaches so hence wanting to cast along way.I can cast 60-80m at a guess so been looking at options ,will see how it goes.

    ?? I fished a few times last year with a cannon ….237mtrs was the last cast ….ended up foul hooking a dolphin lmao ..

    The trigger is the key …less efficient the trigger the higher the air pressure needed for serious distance .

    We havent got the best trigger , so needed 160psi for that cast , may have even been 180….takes some effort with a hand pump .

    With a good trigger we’d get that distance with half that pressure

    Using an old 3Kg LPG bottle for the chamber

    yes it seems the best trigger is a modified sprinkler valve,you take out the solenoid and replace it with a air gun trigger.Its apparently 10 times more efficient than a ball valve so less pressure is needed.good for 300 350 m with a 7-10 oz weight.

    Im not completely up to speed with the sprinkler valve idea ..
